Enjoy eggs for breakfast to start the day off right. Whether scrambled, fried, frittata-ed or mixed into omelets, eggs make a quick, easy, and protein-packed breakfast to keep you full through lunch. We love omelets because they can use up leftovers, give you a chance to play around with different flavor combinations, and turn a few eggs into something that feels like a real meal. Here are a few of our favorites.

    Low-Calorie Bacon Omelet

    Low calorie bacon omelet

    The Spruce

    You don't often find the words "low calorie" and "bacon" in the same sentence, but this omelet makes it possible. Swap out fatty pork bacon for the lighter turkey version, and use skim milk instead of full fat. Caramelized onion gives it a nice smoky sweetness and egg whites instead of whole eggs lessen the cholesterol. Don't swap out the one whole egg for whites; you'll need one yolk to hold things together.

    One of the most discussed potential use cases of the block chain is as a decentralized Uber. Instead of using an app, customers could order a car and pay the driver directly, cutting out the middleman. (Sorry, Travis Kalanick.) The block chain can be utilized for everything from the storage of secure documents (that is, a decentralized Dropbox, too) to “watermarking,” in which a specific coin could contain, say, the deed to your house. “The block chain is going to spawn decades of innovation,” says Ryan Selkis, director of investments at the Digital Currency Group, created by former SecondMarket founder Barry Silbert. “It could lead to things like frictionless share issuance, title transfers, smart contracts. Collectively these things make up the backbone of the economy. If you wanted to create a decentralized Uber, Dropbox, Facebook, you could reinvent the Internet.”
    Lopez Short is the name of the game, judging from the red carpet looks of Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez. Both divas went for thigh-high dresses to show off their gams4, with strategically cut out neck and shoulder detail, but where Beyoncé opted to stand out in fire engine red, J. Lo went for soft and satiny earth tones.
    根据中国海关总署(General Administration of Customs)发布的数据,12月份以美元计的出口额同比减少6.1%至2094.2亿美元。这一跌幅比经济学家预期的中数多了2.1个百分点,也大于11月份修正后1.6%的跌幅(修正前该数字为增长0.1%)。
    For once, the Lakers are in good spot and don't have to rush into anything. Take some time. See what they have. They're not making the playoffs with that defense, but that's not really the point of this season anyway.

    Many diners feature this meaty omelet that makes enough to serve two. It comes chock full of ham, bell peppers, onions, and cheddar cheese.

    Philly Cheeseteak Omelet

    Chow down on Philly cheesesteak for breakfast, but without the carb-heavy bun. Philadelphia natives have strong opinions on the right kind of cheese to use, so consider yourself forewarned. Classic American gets nice and melty, but you can use any kind you like best. Shaved flank steak or chunks of leftover steak work great, and sizzling onions round it all out. Drizzle with a little sriracha before serving.

    Classic French Omelet

    Cheddar omelet

    The Spruce / Leah Maroney

    Master this simple French omelet for an easy dish that you can endlessly customize to perfection. We like it with bacon, cheddar, and herbs, but the sky's the limit. Toss the filling in just before it finishes cooking, for best results. A classic French omelet doesn't blend the ingredients into the eggs. The resulting uneven heat can cause them to overcook, so fold them in right at the end.

    Mushroom and onion omelet

    Miri Rotkovitz

    This umami mushroom and onion omelet tastes great for breakfast or brunch, whether you keep kosher or not. Earthy crimini mushrooms work well, but you can use other varieties if you can't find the artisanal variety. Serve it with toast and fresh fruit for breakfast or a green salad and some crisp white wine for dinner.

    Egg White Greek Omelet

    The Spruce / Leah Maroney

    Using egg whites lightens up this delicious Greek omelet, but don't think it shortchanges the flavor. Salty feta cheese and kalamata olives, juicy cherry tomatoes, and iron-rich spinach make it taste just like the islands. A grilled pita on the side just completes the picture.

    Creamy mozzarella cheese and sweet sundried tomatoes give this Italian-style omelet a wonderful contrast to start your day off right. Use fresh shredded basil for the most assertive flavor, and save a little extra to sprinkle on top at the end. This recipe makes enough for four omelets, but you can also scale it down if you only need one or two.

    The Spruce 

    A Korean rolled omelet, or gaeran mari, makes a tasty and unique breakfast, lunch, or side for a larger meal. While it looks complex, the preparation doesn't take any more work than the American version. If you don't care for seaweed or don't have any on hand, feel free to omit it or substitute additional vegetables or even some diced ham.

    Some mornings, even heating up the stove takes too long. For those situations, try this simple omelet that comes together in a microwaved mug. Add in ham, bacon, cheese, sausage, leftover veggies, or any of your favorite omelet toppings. Don't forget to spray the mug with nonstick cooking spray before you start; the eggs will stick like glue otherwise.

    A Japanese fried rice omelet, or omurice, makes a filling and unique breakfast or other meal. Most commonly made with fried rice and chicken then topped with ketchup, it demonstrates a lot of Western influence on Japanese culture. Swap out bell pepper for other veggies and chicken for different protein for a change of pace, once you master the recipe.
